Black Ops 3 Season Pass: 6 Reasons to Buy & 3 to Wait



Here’s a look at whether or not you should buy the Black Ops 3 Season Pass that includes Awakening, Eclipse and two additional DLC map packs that will each include four new maps and a new episode of Zombies. We now include the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Season Pass bonus that guarantees a new Black Ops 3 weapon.

We now know about most of the Black Ops 3 DLC including Awakening, Eclipse and Descent which is the name of the Black Ops 3 DLC 3 map pack. The Black Ops 3 DLC 4 map pack is coming after September 4th.

We want to walk you through what you get with the Season Pass now that we know most of what it includes, the Black Ops 3 DLC release schedule and the Season Pass value as a whole.

The Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Season Pass is a $50 add-on for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC that adds four packs of maps and upgraded zombies experiences to the latest Call of Duty Game.

With this information you can weigh the pros and cons of paying $14.99 for an individual DLC map pack or $50 for a Season Pass.

What you need to know about why you should buy the Awakening Black Ops 3 DLC, and why you should wait.

What you need to know about why you should buy the Awakening Black Ops 3 DLC, and why you should wait.

We can include our Awakening and Eclipse Black Ops 3 reviews and we know what is coming in the Descent Black Ops 3 DLC 3, which helps ease the decision to buy or wait on the Season Pass. This will help guide you through the decision to buy the Black Ops 3 Season Pass or to wait to see what the DLC 4 pack includes.

We’ve already purchased the new Black Ops 3 Season Pass so that we can deliver tips, a Descent DLC review and help address any problems.

With a $50 price tag, that pushes the total investment in the game to $90, not everyone is ready to buy the Season Pass, when it is essentially the cost of another game. If you have a limited gaming budget or are cautious about buying new content for games read on for a further breakdown.

In addition to buying the Season Pass for $50 you can buy the Black Ops 3 Awakening DLC pack alone for $15 or the Eclipse DLC 2 map pack alone for $15. If you buy each map pack alone you will pay $60 for all of them, which is $10 more than a Season Pass, but it also gives you the opportunity to read reviews for each and have more control. However there is a downside to only buying some of the map packs.

Many retailers sell the Black Ops 3 Season Pass for $50. The Awakening Black Ops 3 DLC arrived in February and March and the Eclipse DLC 2 in April and May. The Black Ops 3 DLC 3 maps arrive in July and DLC 4 is likely slotted into a Septembter release.

Here are six reasons you should buy the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Awakening DLC, and three reasons to wait.

You Love Black Ops 3

You Love Black Ops 3

The simplest reason to buy the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Season Pass is that you are hooked on Black Ops 3.

This is one of the reasons we already purchased the Black Ops 3 Season Pass. Unlike previous Call of Duty games where the novelty wore off after a few weeks, Treyarch managed to deliver a game with impressive amounts of replayability.

After spending over 70 hours playing Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, I'm paid $1 or less an hour for the fun that the base game delivered to me by the time the DLC arrives. You can see how much you played Black Ops 3 in the Barracks if you want to make a similar comparison.

Gamers who still find themselves logging in to play Black Ops 3 for an hour or three every night shouldn't think twice about the Season Pass. The new maps and new Zombies content will deliver new experiences and add to the replay factor that is already high.

    I got too excited when I had enough money, accidentally bought Awakening, I notified psn, and they’re going to refund me because I meant to buy the season pass. Well… I still bought the season pass, and it still hasn’t shown Der Riese map on Zombies. I’ve restarted and quit application, and still nothing. Can someone help me with this?

    when you get season pass do you guys get free map packs?

    • Jessica St Dennis Sky

      04/24/2016 at 10:27 pm

      There are no free maps when you pay for the season pass you are paying for the maps they are not free so when you pay $49.99 for the season pass you are paying that to get all the maps.

    From my experience with buying these map packs, they last for like 3 months. You can go to the Bonus category and choose to play against player who have the same map pack. Then after 3 month the Bonus category for that map pack get moved to the general lobby where the maps only come by so often.
